Hiroyuki Hirasawa, M.D., Ph.D.

It is a great pleasure and honor for me to organize The 8th Congress of the International Federation of Shock Societies (IFSS2016) in Tokyo in October 2016. This will be the first time the congress of IFSS is held in Asia where research on shock has undergone a marked development both in basic science and in clinical aspect. It will be a great occasion to deepen mutual understanding between our colleagues from both sides. Even though Japan is located a little bit far from Europe and America, I very much expect that many researchers, doctors, residents and young fellows join us in Tokyo in October 2016. Beside the scientific accomplishment, you will also enjoy Japanese hospitality, Japanese culture, sight-seeing, and Japanese cuisine which has been registered as World Heritage.

I look forward to your distinguished presence at the IFSS 2016 congress.

With the warmest regards,


Professor Emeritus, Department of Emergency and Critical Care Medicine,

On behalf of the local organizing committee of The 8th Congress of the International Federation of Shock Societies (IFSS2016), I cordially invite you all to Tokyo, Japan in October, 2016.

The scientific sessions will cover the basic through the clinical research of Shock. The multimodality is the characteristic in the meeting and the diverse studies from genes, molecules, cells, organs to body will be fully discussed. The timely topics will be also proposed from every Shock Society around the globe, and fruitful discussions will be expected.

Besides the science, we will provide a lot of fun. The venue is located in the central Tokyo. In fact, you can visit the palace and many historical spots in a walking distance or easily by public transportation. October is the most comfortable season for every activity in Tokyo.

We are sincerely looking forward to meeting you all in Tokyo.
